My First Audio Book! Fool Moon; Jim Butcher

"Harry Dresden--Wizard
Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.

Business has been slow. Okay, business has been dead. And not even of the undead variety. You would think Chicago would have a little more action for the only professional wizard in the phone book. But lately, Harry Dresden hasn't been able to dredge up any kind of work--magical or mundane.

But just when it looks like he can't afford his next meal, a murder comes along that requires his particular brand of supernatural expertise.

A brutally mutilated corpse. Strange-looking paw prints. A full moon. Take three guesses--and the first two don't count..."

Title: Fool Moon
Author: Jim Buther
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Rating: 4 out of 5

Hello Fellow Readers!

Oh crap Dresden, You just seem to get deeper and deeper into it, don’t you?
I absolutely enjoyed the second book, the different types of werewolves and Dresden's magic itself was much interesting than the first book. Considering that I choose the audiobook route (my first audiobook btw) it took me much longer to listen to it than it would be to read, besides this I still loved the audio book since James Marsters is the one that reads the book and his voice goes so well with who you think Dresden would be.

There were a couple of things that bothered me, one is that I wished Murphy and Bob were in this book a lot more, I love their characters and wish Butcher would have incorporated them more than he did. Another thing is the werewolf aspect, while I liked the different types of werewolves that are in this world, I still was bothered that they did not have the original type. There's a reason why it is a classic, and I missed that it was not in it.

While I really liked the book, I wished Dresden would think before he does something. Constantly throughout this entire book I was wincing at what this wizard was doing to himself and his body. Honestly it was really hard hearing this through audiobook as I can drift off throughout the book. I will continue reading this series through audiobook, but I do prefer books.

  1. I'm also brand new to audio books - not really my thing but I got three free ones I want to read soon. This series is so popular but I only found the books so-so so far, have read the first two.
